DC Trip

I went to DC for a weekend to attend a good friend's retirement ceremony.  What an awesome trip!  I love my little weekends away every couple of months, and I needed this break. 

I got to DC Thursday and just relaxed and got some good food (I will do a separate food post).  Friday morning I went to the Navy Memorial, to set up and practice for Ken's retirement.  22 years of Naval Service, and a wonderful reunion of good friends!  I went to his house later on in the day to spend time with him, his family, and our friends.  Loved having two low-key nights!  Saturday I went to breakfast with a former CO and his wife, one of the best mentors I could ask for!  After that, Colleen and I went out and about, and attended the Shamrock Fest in DC.  Holy cow was that an interesting time!  After the fest, we grabbed some food and a brew and I headed to my hotel to get some shut eye.  An exhausting and fun weekend!!!
